Nadine and I found ourselves sheltering from the ghastly weather this morning, surrounded by gaggles of glamourous girls, all waiting to see one of the first catwalks of London Fashion week. Dressed to the nines, with full make up at 9am, (rare) we couldn’t wait to see what masterpieces our favourite designer couple had in store for us. All this because Tresor Paris has once again collaborated with Fyodor Golan to help put the finishing touches to their SS 2014 collection ‘Electric Children’.
Past the queues (with our VIP passes!) and up to the venue, splashes of intense colour could be spotted high above street level in a huge minimal function hall, with floor to ceiling windows sweeping the skyline. 280 High Holborn hosted the buzzing fashion event, which fired the starting gun for London Fashion Week 2013 with one of the hottest designer duos in the fashion capital, Fyodor Podgorny and Golan Frydman.
Launching their new collection, ‘Electric Children’ we had time to spot some famous faces among the crowds, celebrities like Laura Whitmore and Dionne Bromfield both looked gorgeous (I envied Dionne’s shoes with murderous intent), not to mention our favourite blogger Mun Wai Wong.
The show itself focused of the reinvention of ‘sportswear luxe’ using sharp geometric forms and a cacophony of textures such as leather, snakeskin, and sheer flowing fabrics. Inspired by motorcycle wear, this high fashion pair succeeded in transforming a masculine look into a sophisticated, feminine style with short jackets and slimline skirts. Needless to say, i was ready to rob everyone at gunpoint, just for a chance to wear one of those dresses! Their description of the collection does the designs justice more than I ever could so…
“Structural but light, with accents of transparent pleating, snakeskin appears coated in pastel sugars, creating artificial, candy-like feeling of sexuality. Strings of pearls in a range of pastel tones are hand crochet to the garments, created bespoke by Tresor Paris. Fyodor Golan’s collaboration with Smiley enhances the 90′s urban feel in the collection through rave inspirations and attitudes in style.”
Loved the snake skin, loved the pastels, loved the raver smiley face 90′s raver mini skirt. Overall for my first ever catwalk show, I loved the peacocking, the posing, the outrageous outfits, and of course the show itself!
Ceramic Tresor Paris beads were sewn on to bralets, tops and dresses at the waistline (yay!) embellishing and adding another glitzy layer of texture to the collection. Tresor Paris were delighted to see the pair dazzle the fashion elite, receiving a warm round of applause after the show and making sure their name will be immortalized at London Fashion Week 2013!
